Wuthering Heights, Emily Brontë

At the center of this brooding romance are Cathy Earnshaw, a beautiful and privileged woman, and Heathcliff, the penniless servant who loves her. When their union is thwarted, Heathcliff plots the ruin of the Earnshaws, all the while pursuing a close relationship with Cathy. With its deep sense of mystery, this classic novel of ill-fated love is a masterpiece of storytelling.
